i know that in the yahoo! news article ( i believe they extensively use reuters for a lot of foreign news) they mentioned the musical "tommy" "in which the main character was sexually molested by his uncle."

it's almost as if they are insinuating that he got off on that, and that tommy should point towards townshend's issues.

i hope it isn't true. sometimes we want to do soemthing right, but don't get witnesses or anything. remember, sin is tempting, even the most vile, disgusting things, and he's only human, no matter how well he plays the guitar.

As a long-time Who fan, I'm aware that Townshend uses many of his life experiences for themes in his music. I hate it that he's getting the shaft because of stuff he's created. I really love this music and I hope the cops and others bug off him soon. I quite honestly don't think he's done anything wrong. I can't prove this beyond a shadow of a doubt, of course, I just don't think so. Maybe I'm too biased.

So, according to yahoo, Eminem must be a mass murderer.

To point out that creations have to do with the actual life of an artist is disgusting, in this case.

And pushes censoring quality on a whole new level.

I dont know Pete personally.

Couldn't agree more... but like WhenHipHopDroveTheBigCars (long enough moniker) said, I don't know Pete personally either, so my judgement of character is based on his public image. Hope everything works out for him personally, so that the Who can go on tour again.

I hope the Who can get back to touring soon, too.
